Hi Everyone,

     I just signed up on this forum today.  I have been using and following AMD products since 2004, built my first pc by myself that year with an Asus A8V Deluxe motherboard and Winchester AMD 3500+ cpu.  I followed this with the AMD FX-55, then moved on to multicore after this.  I signed up with forums in 2006 and went to the AMD Boston show in December 2008, see here on youtube... 6GHz AMD-Boston-Overclock on Phenom II - YouTube  where I met Simon Solotko and Matt Davis from AMD.  I got to see how they overclocked systems with liquid nitrogen!  I used the AMD Phenom 9950, then AMD Phenom II 940 and currently still using an AMD Phenom II 965 rev. C2 in my gaming desktop.


     My current rig is about 5 years old now, and I am looking for new products.  I am hoping to stay with AMD and looking very forward to the new Zen cores when those release in the next year or so.


Hope to talk with you all soon,

Matthew Matinzi
